RFID
comes to bookstores
so that book clerks
will soon need to know

”This handbook identifies
more than 1300 poets
laureated within the Empire
and adjacent territories
between 1355 and 1804”

but I’d fire
the librarian
who bought this,
even at the pre-publication
”discount”
of
$537.30

This is exactly
the sort of project
that ought to be
on the web
for free.

That new Robert Frost poem
